Product Overview

Pervasive developmental disorders include five chronic disorders marked by early impairment in socialization, communication, and behavior. Pervasive developmental disorders have recently been called "Autism spectrum disorder" mostly by the American Psychiatric Association, and the term "pervasive developmental disorders" has been used with the term "autism spectrum disorder" interchangeably. These disorders were first recognized by Grunya Efimovna Sukhareva, a Soviet pediatric psychiatrist who called these disorders "autistic psychopathy." In 1938, Hans Asperger provided more detailed descriptions of children with autistic psychopathy. The autistic psychopathies described by Grunya Efimovna Sukhareva and Hans Asperger were similar and characterized by the absence of significant impairment in language development and cognitive function. In 1943, Leo Kanner called the autistic disturbances occurring in children early infantile autism. During the 1960s the condition described by Leo Kanner became well known as autism, while the autistic psychopathy described by Grunya Efimovna Sukhareva and Hans Asperger which represented a milder form of autism characterized by better language development than autism was called early during the 1980s Asperger syndrome. Recently, Asperger syndrome has been called "High functioning autism" mostly by the American Psychiatric Association." An uncommon type of autism characterized by early normal development followed by regression was identified later, and was called "Regressive autism."
